FRANKLIN COUNTY, Pa. (WHTM) — One day after a Republican State Senator said former President Trump asked him to run for Governor in 2022, a senior adviser to Trump is taking to Twitter stressing that no endorsement was ever made for the governor of Pennsylvania.
Sen. Doug Mastriano of Franklin County made the initial comments during a sit-down interview in the studio of WEEO-FM in Chambersburg while discussing a meeting with Trump in New York City.
But on Twitter, adviser Jason Miller reiterated that Trump “has not made any endorsement or commitments yet” in the race.
Regardless of the finger pointing, Mastriano has yet to officially declare his candidacy.
However, Lou Barletta, the Republican Party’s Trump-endorsed nominee for U.S. Senate in 2018, has declared his candidacy for governor.
